This issue focuses a ton on the eye makeup styles of their models, to be exact 30 pages full of it! Onee style of eye makeup is a bit more light than normal gyaru style, and a lot more of the girls have eyelash extensions. Because of this (for the most part) the models use very simple styles of fake eyelashes. Here's a few previews from that part:
Sayaka Araki's part, she gets 2 pages of course!
Former Jesus Diamante and Himegyaru idol Keiko.
What's really cool is that in the corner of their pages they show how they used to do their makeup the year before this was published. For some of the girls it shows how drastically they changed!
I was really surprised by this, but one of my old friends from Tokyo is actually a model from this magazine! We lost contact awhile ago (after the whole avex debacle in my life), but I'm really glad to see her in this magazine as a model :D
Her name is Marie Honda, and her blog is here. If you're well-versed with the ParaPara world you'll know her as a former Team SEF member. She isn't new to gyaru magazines, when she was younger she used to be featured as a street snap model for the now defunct magazine Ego System.
Here's a picture of us together from about 6 (!!) years ago. This was at a ParaPara event.
Of course I'm shy about showing old pictures on here, I wasn't wearing makeup ^^;;
Here's a couple of random pages now!
Sayaka Araki modeling some of Diamond Beauty's new products. There's a 2 page spread showing how you can do her makeup using their new products.
Clothing snaps and styles.
They used the new Eyemazing Cosmeline produced by Jun Komori for this spread in the magazine, showing how to do oneesan style makeup with it. Sayaka is cheating though, she's wearing Diamond Lash in Cats and Cool eye!
Talking about some plastic surgery enhancements, including botox! Anyone who is in the 25-30 range shouldn't have to use this :'(
The rest of it was makeup heavy and also focused on the oneesan lifestyle, including taking care of kids and doing daily errands. Overall it's an interesting magazine, but I think these models try to age themselves too much at times D:
